If your idea of a ductless air conditioner is an inefficient window unit that can only cool down a small space, we have some good news for you. You can enjoy central air conditioning without a complex ductwork system in your home. Not only that, you can have more energy-efficient air conditioning with a ductless system than you can with a conventional central AC.

How do these systems cool down a whole house without a ventilation system made of ducts? They work through a series of mini air handlers placed on the walls of rooms throughout the house. (These mini-air handlers are why these systems are often called ductless mini splits.) The air handlers connect through the back of the wall to a single outdoor unit, where heat is exhausted. Within each air handler is a fan and a refrigerant coil. The coil absorbs heat, and the fan then sends the air straight into the living spaces. There's no need for ducts at any point.
If your home already has ducts, a ductless mini split is often not the best installation choice. However, if you live in an older or historic home that doesn't have room for ducts, then going ductless is a great way to have central cooling. Ductless mini splits are also ideally suited for new construction and remodeling because of the design flexibility they offer. Finally, if you're adding on a room to your house, it's often much easier to outfit the new space with a ductless mini split rather than attempt to connect it to the ventilation system, which might lower the air conditioner's efficiency and place extra strain on it.
Here are some of the other benefits you can receive from ductless air conditioning:
